Review

Entertainment and Education are blended with great style in a new two-volume video. 'DANCETIME 500 Years of Social Dance' which takes us from Renaissance Court Dances to 1990s rap and MTV styles...each of the social dances has been scrupulously researched but there is nothing stuffy about the presentation. The wonderful performers race us through 500 years of changes in the ways that people have related to each other on the dance floor. Helpful subtitles give us background on what we are seeing, but most viewers will probably be too busy watching the highly skilled dancers to read the titles during a first viewing. --Connecticut Post

Performed beautifully by the Dance Through Time dancers, each of these 45 minute DVDs span the entire recorded span and spectrum of Western dance Taken together, these two superbly produced, performed, presented, and recorded DVDs comprise a complete course in Western dance and would be a welcome addition to personal, professional, academic, and community library collections. --Library Bookwatch

Stepping through history, choreographer and dance historian Carol Teten has assembled a video set, 'DANCETIME! 500 Years of Social Dance.' Over the years, the group from Kentfield, Calif. has toured regularly throughout the United States. For these videos, it weaves together 38 dances with interesting costumes and delightful musical selections as well as facts to please those who enjoy information concerning history, social studies, cultures, and costumes, as well as dance and music. --The Washington Post
